Event Details

Join Autism Ontario and Embrace Autism as we join together to host a Behaviour Management Workshop conducted by Ling Ly Tan BCBA.

 

Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT) is an evidenced-based behavioural approach, founded in the techniques of Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) that can be used as an intervention for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (Koegel, L.K., & Koegel, R.L., n.d.). PRT uses the strategies of ABA to break down, prompt and reinforce specific skills or behaviours in a meaningful way for the child.  The main focus of PRT is to use a child’s natural motivation in a natural context to increase his or her desire to learn.  The four main pivotal areas discussed in this series of articles (motivation, self-initiation, responding to multiple cues and self-management) focus on engaging the child in the process of learning.

About the Speaker

Ling Ly Tan holds a Master of Applied Disabilities specializing in Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) from Brock University and is a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst. Ling has over 10 years of direct clinical experience implementing ABA and Intensive Behavioural Interventions (IBI). Her clinical experience includes working with individuals ranging from infants at risk at 12 months old up until adulthood, from severe to high functioning individuals diagnosed with autism, developmental disabilities and other behavioural disorders. 

Ling is an active faculty member at Seneca College. She regularly teaches courses for the Autism and Behavioural Sciences Ontario Graduate Certificate Program, is a member of the Seneca’s Program Advisory Committee and also serves as Subject Matter Expert on program and curriculum development. 

At 1to1 Therapy, Ling has developed the clinical and operational infrastructure for the ABA service model. She oversees day to day operations and provides ongoing training, supervision and workshops for clinicians and other professionals. She also supervises BCBA candidates during their field practicum placements.

Ling is extensively trained in the application of Skinner’s Analysis of Verbal Behaviour to teach language and communication. She has over 10 years of experience teaching sign language, PECS, and other electronic communication devices to non-verbal children and youth. Her knowledge and experience also extends to naturalistic and relationship based interventions such as Early Start Denver Model (ESDM) and Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT). Ling incorporates the rigor of ABA through data collection procedures to inform the progress of treatments that target core learning deficits in children with ASD. As a practicing Behaviour Analyst, Ling strongly believes that all clients have the right to treatment that is effective, individualized and comprehensive in scope
